Cooking is chemsestry and art combined. It is science and expression in a singular edible form.
she knitted her pie crust … she wins !
“This Thanksgiving I decided to top all pies by knitting the lattice crust of my homemade spiced apple pie. It was kind of like being a kid playing with playdo all night in the kitchen… for 3 hours!
I used Trader Joe’s Pie Crust, with trips in and out of the freezer when it got too sticky. Chop sticks and straws helped keep my warm hands off and work in the small spaces.
I struggled to brush the egg white on, then inspiration struck: why not put egg whites in the misto? Voila! Fancy sugar sprinkles and some foil to prevent browning, and it came out perfectly, even holding up over night without collapsing, as apple pies are wont to do.”
I’m glad that Bilbo Baggins exists
Because in the book, the dude was pretty firmly middle aged when his crazy-ass adventure started
He was settled down in the house that belonged to his parents and had done precisely jack shit with his life
It gives me hope that maybe some nutcase wizard will eventually show up and be like yo
you’re a burglar now
don’t even care that you didn’t roll rogue homie we got dragons to slay and kingdoms to save
More on Valkyrie.
NASA unveils 6-foot ‘superhero robot’ Valkyrie
Designed to compete in the DARPA Robotics Challenge, this “female” robot could be the precursor to robo-astronauts that will help colonize Mars.
What if NASA’s Robonaut grew legs and indulged in steroids? The result might be close to what NASA has unveiled: Valkyrie is a humanoid machine billed as a “superhero robot.” Developed at the Johnson Space Center, Valkyrie is a 6.2-foot, 275-pound hulk designed to compete in the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC). It will go toe to toe with the Terminator-like Atlas robot from Boston Dynamics in what’s shaping up to be an amazing modern-day duel. In an interesting twist, Valkyrie seems to be a girl. While officially genderless, “Valkyrie” (a nickname, since the official designation is R5) evokes the goddess-like females of Norse myth.

So this is how the robot apacolyps begins. Not in secret, not by accident, but with the good old fashioned “Anything you can do I can do better” spirit.
Neat robot, though.
Guess who isn’t paying twice as much this winter!
Doctor Who comics are amazing! XD
There is a whole generation gasping for air, lauging so hard it hurts.
